As the Masters quickly approach this week many people in the golf community are wondering which Tiger will show up; the one who looked lost the first month of the tour or the one who dominated the field while winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational a couple weeks ago. Woods did not participate in the Shell Houston Open last weekend, so expect him to be well rested and focused for the event. Right now, Woods looks like he did five years ago and with the Masters starting on Thursday, he picked the perfect time to get his swing back.
All month Woods has been obsessive with his putting, as he spent countless hours on the different greens tapping it in. Woods has never been this dedicated to improving an aspect of his game, and it obviously paid off because it was the reason he won the API. Woods sunk big put after big put to hold off Graeme McDowell to win the event, quickly putting to rest any concerns about his short game.
When the Masters tee off, the whole world will be waiting to see if Tiger gets to put on his illustrious fifth green jacket. He will have some heavy competition with Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy in the field, but Woods is still the favorite, hands down. He is playing as good as anyone else on the tour right now and the “Iceman” has never given in to pressure. Woods has always saved his best for the Masters; so make sure to grab him first in all fantasy golf drafts this week.
